, first of all, let's remember the obama administration never sought an indictment against anwar awlaki that we know of. he was never charged with a crime that we know of. and he was executed out of orders from the president of the nine states is a timber 2011. the issue is not to anwar awlaki was, but the issue is the constitution, due process. what we saw -- i that senator feinstein's office coordinated this moment with the white house to put on this show trial because of the deadly serious questions surrounding the killing of a u.s. citizen without due process. what we saw play out there was with absolute theater where you had anwar awlaki been posthumously tried with no evidence. what came after the clip you just played is feinstein in brennan agreeing quite heavily that anwar awlaki was a bad man and that it was justified to take him out and kill him but there's no question about the fact two weeks later they killed and more al-awlaki's 16-year-old son who no one has ever alleged has any ties to terrorism or any militant organization. his only connection was who his father was. the

that memo said. >> so you're saying president obama is using drones illegally? >> i'm saying if he uses it against american citizens without specific intelligence, yes. >> the take home message here is enhanced interrogation is wrong, killing suspects is okay. it's basically like saying shoplifting is bad, but killing the shoplifter okay. this is why i want to be a liberal, because you can act like a conservative when a republican kills, it's evil. but when a democrat kills, oh, look a pretty butterfly. >> earlier this week, the left, looneys were after me saying oh, now, this is the one who defended the torture and the waterboarding of three terrorists and now she's defending drone policy! they don't even understand their own hypocrisy. >> can i point out some of their hypocrisy? roll that clip of eric holder in 2009. >> i agree with you, mr. chairman, waterboarding is torture. >> do you believe that the president of the united states has the authority to exercise a commander in chief override and immunize acts of torture? >> it's my belief that the president does not have the power th
